Cajun Grilled Ribs


These ribs are grilled slow enough to keep them from getting tough but hot enough to give them a good crust over the surface. You can use this recipe for smoked pork ribs as well.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 pounds/2 kg pork spareribs
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL salt
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL thyme
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL oregano


Mix together the dry ingredients. Trim and clean ribs. Rub ribs with spices and let sit for 1 hour. Preheat grill. Cook over an indirect heat for about 45 minutes. Turn once. Watch carefully to avoid burning. The ribs are done when a knife passes easily into the meat between the ribs and you can see no or very little pink.
